Pros: Kitchen, option to cook your own breakfast, proximity to the city centre/AMS central Cons: The bedroom is really really really tiny. Think of the tiniest bedroom ever- this bedroom is tinier than that. No air conditioning in the unit which is huge disadvantage in summer. we hardly slept bc of the heat.

Location is perfect, close from a center plus seeing very interesting parts on the way. Its a lovely little quiet paradise within 20 min walk from live and energetic part of the city. Owners are really very nice and helpful. Boat is equipped like a flat, so you can feel like home. Room is tiny, but you can spend time...

Central location, short walk into the heart of the city. Nicely equipped for the budget traveller. Owner obviously takes great care of the boat and does all she can to make guests stay enjoyable. Excellent WiFi and very useful book containing information about the city. Bathroom is tiny, but it's a boat! Much thought has gone into making guests comfortable...

It was a perfect place to stay for us. Near Central Station. Silvia filled up the fridge every day and she sent someone to repair if anything was broken. The room was very small, but there is a big kitchen which you can be used. Thumbs up for Antonia

There was great wifi, a great view, laundry, and a kitchen! It was definitely a quiet place to stay. I recommend getting a bike to see the entire city! The food was simple and delicious. It consisted of fruit, cheese, bread, juice, milk, coffee, eggs, etc.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our splendid houseboat is situated in the center of Amsterdam. Here you can truly experience the four elements: earth, water, air and fire. Your host speaks seven languages and can help you out with any questions you might have. Our Houseboat is situated in a quiet canal near the city centre only a 15-minutes walk from the Central Railway Station. (1 stop by tram) Within walking distance up to 1 km: Music Theatre, Bimhuis, Nemo Museum, Maritime Museum, Conservatory, New Library, the start of several walks and cycle tours with beautiful views of innovative and historical architecture trough the Eastern Docklands: Java, KNSM, Sporenburg and Borneo Islands. The area is safe and quiet because it's a dead-end-street. Houseboat Southern Comfort offers two spacious bright guestrooms with a fantastic view over the water while lying in bed. Both furnished with a comfortable double bed, single loft bed, and desk with two chairs, TV, DVD player, fridge, WIFI, central heating, towels and bed linen. The two rooms share one bathroom with shower and toilet. Guests can use the well-equipped kitchen for self-catering. A magnetron/oven combination, tea, coffee and breakfast for the first morning are available. Enjoy the four elements: make your own campfire, have a rest or BBQ in the garden, enjoy the roof for sunbathing, enjoy the historic city centre views or take a canoe for a ride through the canals (four canoes are available, two for adults, two for children). We provide life jackets for the children. ... more   less
